COVID-19 Research at UZH

Researchers at the University of Zurich have the skills, experience and knowledge to make a vital contribution to tackling the coronavirus crisis. Since the beginning of the coronavirus crisis, many have changed the focus of their research, launched new research projects or expanded the scope of existing projects.

On the Pulse of Covid-19 Research

In the middle of April, the UZH Foundation launched a fundraising campaign for urgent research projects tackling the Covid-19 pandemic. The focus is on research into antibodies to determine immunity, spread of the disease, and improvements in treatment. At the start of the pandemic in Switzerland, UZH News talked to three UZH researchers about their work. Now, in the second wave, we return to ask them what progress has been made.
